Dr. Epstein's book lays it on the line. It appears to be a remarkable summary of the research, making the case for sleep therapy of many kinds, but is especially strong on sleep apnea.
I really got the idea that the book was written on two levels. First, it is authoritative enough for MD reading. Second, it is clear enough for patients to read.
My mental struggle with the CPAP therapy has been going on for two years. After reading this book, the prospect of wearing the mask for the rest of my life doesn't seem onerous at all. Reduced risk of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, stroke, and car collisions.
There are many other important topics addressed as well. And its hard to imagine a better source.
